Who asked for it? Just kidding. It does bring up the point, just who were they aiming this movie for? High School kids would fall asleep and college men...well John Boy Walton was home from the war, so perhaps Jason,or Jim-Bob?

Hmmm Good question..

I wonder if guidance counsellors (If they existed back then) would have 16 mm projectors set up in their offices. So, if little Joe came in having shyness problems, they could just turn this film.. I wonder if that how it would work... Anyone have a general idea of how these films were shown?

I would assume it was a random thing, kind of a "it's such and such a date, time for "Shy Guy" kind of thing.
I went to an elementary school out in the country. We were all kids living on farms. The school district showed us all a film on bicycle safety in town, mainly how to cross the street properly, use the traffic lights, etc. None of us lived in the city, and the nearest city doesn't even have stoplights.
